Their home opener will be Friday, Oct. 29 against the Indiana Pacers at the Time Warner Cable Arena.

The 82-game schedule consists of 41 home and 41 road dates. The Bobcats will make six national television appearances this season, including one game each on ESPN and ESPN2 and four games on NBATV.

Eight of the Bobcats first 16 games will be at Time Warner Cable Arena. The Bobcats return home on Saturday, Nov. 26 for a 2010 first-round playoff rematch with Dwight Howard and the Orlando Magic. The Bobcats will make their NBATV debut for the season on Monday, Nov. 8 when they host Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs. Other home opponents during this stretch include Deron Williams and the Utah Jazz on Saturday, Nov. 13, Steve Nash and the Phoenix Suns on Saturday, Nov. 20 and Amare Stoudemire and the New York Knicks on Wednesday, Nov. 24. The Bobcats return to the ESPN family of networks for the first time since December 2007 when they face Yao Ming and the Houston Rockets on Friday, Nov. 26 in an ESPN2 telecast.

The schedule also features several marquee matchups with the Boston Celtics, Miami Heat and the two-time defending NBA Champion L.A. Lakers. Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and the defending Eastern Conference Champion Celtics come to Charlotte on Saturday, Dec. 11 and Monday, Feb. 7. Chris Bosh, reigning league MVP LeBron James and Dwyane Wade lead the new-look Heat into town on Monday, Jan. 3 and Friday, Feb. 4.

The Bobcats schedule features a five-game home-stand, which will take place Dec. 21 - Jan. 3. The longest road stretch of the season is a six-game West Coast trip Jan. 25 - Feb. 2. The trip includes four games against teams from the Pacific Division, against which the Bobcats went 8-2 last season.

Nineteen of the Bobcats final 41 games will be at home this season, including seven of their final 11 and the regular-season finale on Wednesday, April 13 against the Atlanta Hawks on ESPN at 8:00 pm.

    Agreed. I don't know what they're smoking in Charlotte, but some of those trades don't make any sense at all, and they never should have let Felton go.
